Hotel Seattle tries very hard to be hip and edgy, much like a Hotel W - they do not succeed.
The facilities need to be spruced up, a lick or two of paint would not hurt at all.
The room was on the small side with no wardrobe, just a bar for hanging clothes from. If this bar is used, then one finds the TV screen covered with hanging clothes. Not really the most intelligent layout and design. The bed was very comfortable and there was an iPod dock in the room.
The location at the Marina is about a 10 minute taxi ride to the Pier. It might be a nice walk on a pleasant day, but not so much if it is chilly and not sunny. To be fair, it was noted on the website that it is about 2.5 miles from the centre of Brighton.
Front desk staff were very good. The staff in the restaurant at breakfast were outstanding as was the food.
One of the bar staff needs to learn not to be annoyed if customers interrupt personal phone calls. Bad move young lady, it cost you a tip and left a bad taste in my mouth.
My recommendation depends on what one is lookng for ... there are other places in Brighton that represent better value for money IMO, but if the location is what is important and you want to be at the Marina, go for it.
